? >> they avoided the name "george w. bush" similar to ronald reagan's foreign-policy. they do not want to be in his corner. at the same time, they want to take advantage of the traditional republican strength. they believe they are tougher when it comes to national security. he's trying to solve that dilemma by saying he wants to avoid war by spending more on the military. he does not want to scare off any independent voters but at the same time he wants to satisfy his conservative clients. >> let's look at the broader campaign. last week, he got a big boost from winning that the raid against obama. the polling numbers also looking better for him now. is the obama campaign worried? >> nervous, there is no question, but as there has been some significant change in some of the most important swing states, ohio and florida. things change on a daily basis here. we have not factored that in yet for the new unemployment numbers that came out friday that are in obama's favor. this will be a very, very close race matter what anyone says. we will know on election day how it plays out. they will have to figh

menace to our planet." he once called former president george w. bush "a donkey, a coward and an immoral person." anchor jorge ramos from our partner network univision is in venezuela tonight for the election, and i spoke with jorge just moments ago here. jorge, great to have you with us again tonight and president chavez finding himself in his closest race yet to hold on to power. >> reporter: absolutely. for the first time in 13 years president hugo chavez might lose the presidency. he hasn't been able to control inflation, crime, corruption, and for the first time all the opposition parties got together behind one candidate, henrique capriles, a formidable 40-year-old former governor. >> we al know that president chavez almost made it political sport to become friends with our own rivals in america but he also controls a significant amount of oil that comes to the united states. >> reporter: there is a lot at stake for the united states here in venezuela. on a personal level, we have to remember that president hugo chavez had insulted both president barack obama and president bush, bu

to support cell health. one a day 50+. >>shepard: the venezuela leader who called george w. bush the devil and suggested the united states gave his latin america counterparts cancer has won another term. a third term for the president chavez who clutched a copy of the sword of bolivar, a famous dictator in the mid-10000's. thousands commanded "viva chavez." a long time american critic won by a ten-point margin compared by 27 points in 2006 when he was accuses using the oil wells to finance the campaign and looking up votes from the poor through generous welfare reform. and now the news from our south florida newsroom. it sound like this could have been much closer but not so much. >>reporter: well, people thought it would be a close call. some of them calling it for the opposition leader. in the end, chavez won by ten points, 27 last time around. that marks quite a turn around for chavez. for the past year he has battled cancer and he has had three operations and chemotherapy. six months ago he was in a church, crying, asking the lord for more time. the recent weeks, though, he has been da
prepare george w. bush for debate was fairly critical on our program before going in and has a column today saying that the tone and the substance of what he presented was much more acceptable to the mainstream of america. and i think that's why you're seeing a movement in the polls whether the numbers are correct or not. we're seeing a trend. >> you know, richard, it seems, even up until the day before the first debate, mitt romney was still running a primary. >> right. >> -- election campaign. and a lot of people, a lot of republicans wondering as well as democrats, why couldn't he make that shift? richard nixon said it famously, when you're primary, you're under the right, the general, under the center. >> makes no sense. honestly, makes no sense and opens him up to the big vulnerability. he had him at last debate. for instance, one of your favorite subjects on simpson/bowles. he goes out and says, you, mr. president, should've embraced simpson/bowles. and one of the rare moments where the president said, why didn't you take simpson/bowles, and he said, wait, hold on a second. whic
it's about power on a certain level. i mean, look, nixon, reagan, george w. bush, republican presidents have learned how to get stuff done at times in the face of congress and sometimes controlled by the other party. you know, this whole notion of the imperial presidency that arose under nixon, not coincidentally, a republican, i think you said it was kind of a tori sensibility. but it's really a concentration of power. >> are they stronger than the democrats and they know what that is? assembly, parliamentary? >> in some ways they have been more skillful and more ruthless in the way that they have moved the levers of power. in washington and outside of washington, to get stuff done. >> joy, i don't think the republicans have a karl rove a. malignant sense of power, i'm going to be the architect and i'm going to rule and they are spreading the money around and trying to get back the power. it does seem almost obsessive, the love of the white house. >> i think eugene robinson is right. for conservatives, the idea of being the cowboy, they like the self-image for themselves and
nations general assembly, when he had choice words to describe then- president george w. bush. >> ( translated ): this podium where it is now my turn to speak still smells of sulfur! yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, at this same rostrum, mr. president of the united states was here, the one i call the devil. >> suarez: with president obama, he's has been less hostile, but no less theatrical, this week confidently saying the two would vote for each other in their respective contests. >> ( translated ): if i were american, i would vote for obama. and i think if obama was from here, from barlovento or from some neighborhood in caracas, he would vote for chavez. i am sure of it. >> suarez: yet he's continued to thwart american efforts on a range of international issues, such as washington's attempt to convince iran's president mahmoud ahmadinejad to halt his country's pursuit of nuclear weapons. and he's stymied efforts to remove syria's president, bashar al-assad, by being an ally to the regime at the united nations and providing vital fuel to power assad's crackdown. indeed, as a
in the obama administration. and peter feaver served on the national security council staff during the george w. bush administration. he's now a professor of political science and public policy at duke university. we thank you both for being with us. peter feaver, to you first. we heard governor romney today criticize the president broadly for not rejecting strongly enough america's influence in the world. yet when it came to specifics, we didn't hear many details. so let me just ask you about a couple of different places in the world. what about when it comes to iran. what exactly governor romney be doing differently right now? >> well, this is the criticism that the obama campaign has leveled at the romney campaign for not being detailed and specific enough. when it comes to iran, the president hasn't laid out a red line that he said clearly he would enforce. when asked to be precise about what it means for iran not to possess a nuclear weapon, the articulation of the red line, he's been vague and says he doesn't want to parse it further. i think there's a certain element of ambiguity about w
of the budget office under george w. bush. welcome back to the program, good to see you again. >> thank you. stuart: i think that 7.8% unemployment rate, and the miraculous discovery of 873,000 people working, i think that paints the wrong picture of the unemployment situation in america today. you agree with me? do you focus on 14-7? >> the 873,000 jobs created in the household survey are at odds with every other piece of data we have about september in the united states. it looks more and more as you stare at it, this is just a statistical fluke, there weren't 873,000 jobs created there weren't-- it's better to to set aside that number, look as you do the broader number, 14.7%, look the at the payroll survey, 114,000 jobs created and it looks like more of the same. the economy drifting side ways, and not falling off the cliff, but not going anywhere. >> what kind of new jobs are we creating? that report says over 500,000 part-time jobs and i don't know what kind of part-time jobs they were. but 114,000 full-time jobs reported by employers. and seems to me that this is not really adding to
